Montanya Oro Rum is distilled and blended with San Juan mountain spring water. Despite the relatively short time in a barrel, the complexity of this pot still spirit is nicely enhanced by contact with the wood. Hints of toffee in the aroma lead to a body of expresso, toffee, vanilla and honey until roasted coffee beans dominate the slightly smoky finish.
Montanya is one of the few distillers to make a good rum in the first year of operation. I look forward to tasting more Montanya rums in the future.
